In Haiti, the school year starts in September and ends in June. At our Jacmel campus, our kids attend 8 different schools! Our younger children leave for school around 6:00 AM, with everyone off of campus by 9:00 AM, except a handful of children who are homeschooled by HAFP staff and tutors. The majority of schools in Haiti are private, with most charging a tuition fee; a barrier to schooling for many. Children start going to school at 3 years old for pre-K, and complete their education after they finish philo, what would be the equivalent of “13th grade” in the US. The first HAFP child (now, adult) to complete philo was Marvensky in 2019!
